The Cumulus studios in downtown Montgomery.
- Started off as
a class A station on 95.3 with the WQIM calls. It played a
combination of AC, oldies and recent nostalgia. The station switched
to an black contemporary format for a short time before the
frequency and power change came. On the first day of the new
frequency it changed to rock and has been "The Fox" ever since. The
station, in the summer of 2006, applied for a change to their
facilities, from a 50kW station at about 476 ft from a Pratville
sited tower to one in the city of Montgomery (east) with just 5400
watts at over 1,000 ft.
station's HD broadcasts expanded in the middle of June 2011 with the
addition of two simulcasts, Cumulus AMs WMSP and WLWI. In June
2013 the station announced it had scored Alabama Crimson Tide
Football rights. The market is technically served by WDXX out
of Selma, but as a rimshot signal it doesn't cover the Montgomery
market well. WXFX will share coverage with WDXX. In 2015
the station added a fourth HD signal to relay Contemporary Christian
WAY-FM, which itself is being relayed onto translator W272CO in
